Serious Personal Injury

We represent your interests

It’s an unpleasant reality: accidents happen and people get hurt. A log truck runs a family off the highway. A motorcyclist is run down by a driver paying attention to his text messages instead of the stop sign. A shop owner puts profits over customer safety. An elderly patient receives substandard care at a poorly staffed nursing home. A bar serves a customer too many drinks, leading to terrible accidents later that night. No matter how hard we try to control our environment, good people are left with terrible injuries, and a hard time figuring out where to go from here.

South Carolina’s civil justice system cannot undo these terrible events, but the experienced injury attorneys at Ben Traywick Law Firm can make the system work for you by holding the at-fault parties accountable. We go hard after every penny you deserve. Insurance companies frequently pay medical bills, get your car fixed, and consider themselves to have made the situation right. They haven’t. Make sure that your injury lawyer knows better. Beyond the medical bills and property damage, there are lost wages, compensation for permanent impairment, pain and suffering, mental anguish, future medical needs, your family’s loss of your personal services, and more. Each of these are elements of those suffering personal injuries’ actual damages.

Your case is our case. At BTL we pride ourselves on taking a personal interest in every client, every case, every injury claim. Each client who walks through our door is a part of our firm’s family, not just a file number who is assigned to a paralegal. Our injury attorneys, Ben Traywick and Ali Williams, answer their own phones, and they talk and text with clients any time, day or night. We think that injured people should have that type of access to their lawyer, to us: not to a paralegal or secretary.

A skilled trial lawyer with more than a decade of experience litigating injury claims, Ben Traywick and his staff understand how to use the legal process in Charleston and across South Carolina to ensure just and full compensation for your injuries. Our attorneys have prosecuted jury trials to verdict in Charleston, Berkeley, Georgetown and other Counties across the Lowcountry, Midlands, and Upstate of South Carolina.

Seasoned litigators know that serious injury claims are expert driven these days. Our injury law firm has connections with consultants and expert witnesses across a range of disciplines to help us confirm the facts of the case quickly, to understand the scope of our clients’ injuries thoroughly, and to position the case for full and prompt recovery. Because these consultants and experts are expensive, the lawyer you choose should be experienced and confident in these kinds of cases.

Negligence takes many forms, not all of them obvious. Lawyers like us who represent injured people hear it every day from insurance companies and defense lawyers: “Just because someone was hurt, doesn’t mean someone else was negligent.” We of course agree with that statement. But that doesn’t mean that a thorough, capable investigation into the “how” and the “why” of a serious personal injury isn’t a good idea. What looks like a simple act of negligence by a driver, may in fact be the negligence of the drive…which was aggravated by the unlawful encroachment by an adjoining property owner into the right-of-way. What looks like an unfortunate workplace accident may be a defectively designed or poorly maintained piece of equipment. The list goes on. At Ben Traywick Law Firm we look deeply into the circumstances and mechanics of how an injury occurred, to identify all responsible parties from whom a fair recovery can be made.
